Mother’s Day today has been a very quiet affair for me and my little family. We had no real plans. Nowhere to be. My Mum was at my Sister’s house, and Hubby’s Mum on holiday, so it was just the four of us. I’d had a busy few days before. I went to a spa weekend with some blogging friends on Friday and Saturday, which was both relaxing and such…

On any normal Saturday morning Hubby and I usually hear the children running in at 6.30am shouting “Mummy, Daddy time to get up” and we both want to hide under the duvet for a little longer. Just another half an hour perhaps? But last Saturday morning we were both just as excited as they were to jump out of bed, get showered and dressed, eat breakfast and…

It’s Mother’s Day this Sunday – a time to wish Mothers everywhere just how loved and special there are. I am hoping that Hubby reads this post in order to get some ideas for possible gifts that my lovely twins can get for me! Leaving the laptop open on this post and also texting the post directly to him may help..?! In all honesty, I do work very,…

My lovely Mum used to read children’s books to me when I was a little girl – all the time. She was very much into literature (and still is) and so I think this passion has been passed on to me. Because I too love everything reading and writing. As a Mother now myself I have been really enjoying settling down with my own twins – with a…

Reading to the twins is something that I sincerely love to do. We all enjoy it so much, and get a lot of pleasure from it. They love selecting a book from the bookcase, cuddling up to me, listening to the stories and repeating some of the words and phrases that we read together.

When I became a Mummy over 3 years ago, I didn’t realise just how tough a job it is. Sure it is rewarding and amazing, but it is also one that’s never-ending. There is so much to think about and do – every day. Especially throw in the matter of working too. It is therefore important for me to take conscious breaks, or I often feel as though…

Now that Hubby and I have moved over 100+ miles away to Worcester (due to work) away from our parents, (and subsequent babysitters), we don’t get a lot of time to go out together in the evenings any longer. With twins who are still little, our week nights are very much spent at home in front of Netflix and browsing the internet on our phones.…

For lots of people, the end of the Christmas holidays signifies going back to work, or back to a routine they previously had. Not too much change on their part, just fuller bellies after too much indulgence, and darker circles under the eyes as a result of the early mornings again. Christmas is officially over for another year – and getting back into normal daily-life again in…

Hubby finished work on Wednesday for the whole holidays, and so we have decided to pack as much family time in as we can before Christmas next week – including visiting a local farm park and seeing Father Christmas! The weather was a little grey on the morning, but the twins had their new Muddy Puddles jackets to wear. And so a little rain wasn’t going to stop…
